    Based on my viewing of dogs getting rescued from horrible situations, I have a question.

    When those dogs get homes they appear extremely grateful, because they've been on the streets, dirty and starving.

    Do you think that a puppy who grew up in a great home, never wanted for anything, and never knew hunger, would have the same appreciation for the "good life" it has?

    Girls don't appreciate anyone regardless of where they came from.
    You're better of staying single. 😉

    What does that have to do with dogs?

    Your girlfriend still pissed at you for acting like a caveman at the jukebox?

    My mistake 🤭

    it is an old thought but i will repeat it here.

    if you lock your wife and your dog in the trunk of the car ( that is a boot to you all in "england" ) and leave them there for an hour,
    after you then re-open the trunk it is only the dog who will wag
    it's tail and be still glad to see you.

    Interesting.
    We have two dogs.
    A rescue dog we homed after 4 years of neglect; Bonnie.
    And a pampered pooch we have had from a puppy; Bella.

    Bonnie is grateful for everything (even after nearly 10 years with us)
    Bella doesn't stop complaining!
